The First Tee Invitational

The First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge’s 11th annual “The First Tee Invitational” was a huge success!

On July 15, 2019, we hosted “Two Tournaments on Two Great Courses” at Farmington and Glenmore Country Clubs in support of The First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge. Over 150 people came out to support The First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge and while enjoying a great day of golf at one of Virginia’s finest clubs.

The First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge provides programs to area children that promote life skills, character development, and life-enhancing values by teaching the Nine Core Values of The First Tee: Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect, Confidence, Responsibility, Perseverance, Courtesy, and Judgment.

One hundred percent of raised funds remain locally and support The First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge as it provides programs that open up a whole new world of opportunities for our area youth. Proceeds from the event ensure that The First Tee of the Virginia Blue Ridge can provide:

  • Funding for The First Tee National School Program, which currently places the Nine Core Values in front of more than 6,000 elementary school students in the area.
  • Support of The First Tee programming in partnership with other youth-serving organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Central Virginia
  • Free access for kids who cannot afford the participant fees
  • Golf equipment for the participants
  • Additional training and educational materials for participants
  • Expanded training for coaches
  • Expense coverage for kids who qualify for regional and national events

These are just a small sample of the many positive contributions this tournament provides for our local chapter.

Thank you to all those who participated! We look forward to seeing you again next year.
